The wife is concerned enough about her burglar husband to bring Maigret into the case. From there, the story becomes a classic procedural with Maigret gradually wearing down the two main suspects in the murder. No surprise that greed, envy and jealously might figure in the motives for the presumed murder.

Maclaren-Ross Maigret and the tall woman (2016) tr. David Watson. bibliography entry films, television. Maigret of the Month: March, 2007. One of M's old "customers", Ernestine Micou, who he'd arrested 17 years earlier, comes to M to tell of her's husband's misadventure. She'd married Alfred Jussiaume, "Sad Freddie", a safecracker, and while he'd been doing a job in Neuilly, with his usual bad luck, he'd discovered the body of a dead woman and fled. However Serre's Dutch wife, the former Maria Van Aerts, supposedly left on the day Alfred saw the body, returning indefinitely to Holland. The doctor explaines that the newly replaced window pane, which Alfred had presumably removed to break in, was broken in the recent storm. M is ready to drop the case, when he stops in at the hardware store, and learns that Serre had bought another pane, two days later, the day after the break in.

When Sad Freddie, an ace safecracker, stumbles upon a murdered woman during a burglary, his wife, Lofty, turns to the inimitable Inspector Maigret for help

In 1953 Paris, Chief Inspector Maigret is visited by a "bust" from the past--a very self-possessed ex-prostitute who is worried about the disappearance of her husband. The spouse, a well-known cat burglar, has blown town after informing his wife that he had come across a woman's body while on the job in a Paris suburb. The wife is concerned enough about her burglar husband to bring Maigret into the case. From there, the story becomes a classic procedural with Maigret gradually wearing down the two main suspects in the murder. No surprise that greed, envy and jealously might figure in the motives for the presumed murder.

Meanwhile, the reader is taken on a tour of 1950s Paris--the suburbs at least--with regular stops at cafes and restaurants. It's a short, but satisfying story that represents author Georges Simenon's mastery of the genre. Entertaining and recommended.

Sad Freddy, the safecracker, who wouldn't hurt a fly, stumbles on a corpse while doing a job. He flees in panic, leaving his tools behind. And now his wife Ernestine, an off-and-on prostitute, begs Maigret to clear Freddy of murder.

Maigret decides to trust her, for the moment anyway.

The trouble is, there's no corpse to be found - only a lovely home inhabited by an elegant old lady and her dentist son who deny having had a break-in. Simenon faces the daunting task of identifying an invisible corpse and the motives behind the crime (if there was one).

Simenon has a genius for filling out Maigret's character bit by bit in each novel, which may partly explain why these little books are so addictive. You keep wanting more.

Ernestine's levelheaded affection for her hapless husband adds to the charm of the story.

Simenon writes compact but every word is meaningful. Every sentence valuable to the case. You may think you know the killer but he surprises me every one of his over 200 books. People read this murder mystery author.

This was a wonderful book that Simenon wrote. I read the reviews in the Wall St Journal bought the books they recommended. His books are well written and well translated from the French. The story is about a man who worked for a safe manufacturing firm. Then he began to rob the safes he had installed until he found a dead woman on one of his jobs. This is how Maigret is called in. I don't want to tell much to give away the good finalality of his investigations.

Georges Simenon was born in Liege, Belgium, in 1903. A hugely prolific writer, his best known creation is Inspector Maigret - a French policeman, based in Paris. "Maigret's and the Burglar's Wife" was first published in 1953.

The book opens with Maigret being visited by an old acquaintance called Ernestine Micou. Unfortunately, they had known each other professionally, rather than personally. Seventeen years previously, when she had been more widely known as Lofty, Maigret had arrested her in a small hotel near the Porte Saint Denis. (It had only been a petty theft but Lofty didn't make things easy for Maigret - who'd only been a young cop at the time. She was stark naked when he arrived and refused point blank to get dressed). This time, however, she's coming to Maigret for help - and has arrived fully clothed. Lofty is now married to Alfred Jussiaume - also known as "Sad Freddie", the unluckiest safecracker in France. He had once been employed by Planchart's, a firm of safe makers. Since he installed safes right across Paris, he knows exactly where to go and how to break into them. Unfortunately, he never finds the one big payday he needs inside the safe he has chosen. Despite having already spent five years inside, the press love him, and paint him as something of a romantic figure. Two nights previously, according to Lofty, Freddie went out on a job in Neuilly and never came home. He'd phoned Lofty at five in the morning from a little cafe near the Gare du Nord. Apparently, he'd stumbled across a corpse mid-job, and was spotted fleeing the scene. Since he'd left his tools at the scene and he'd be easily identified by his bike, he's clearly afraid of being set up for murder - so he's decided to make himself scare. There's only one problem : there have been no reports of any murders in Neuilly and no random bodies turning up. Maigret decides to look into things anyhow : he starts with Planchart's, looking for the houses in Neuilly that had a safe installed by Sad Freddie had worked in. They soon settle on Guillaume Serre's house as the most likely scene...unfortunately, not only do the Serres deny there was a murder, they also deny there was an attempted burglary.

A fun book and not a particularly long one - however, it doesn't feel rushed at any point and all the bases are covered. Monsieur Serre isn't a likeable sort - surly and unhelpful, he seems strangely unwilling to answer Maigret's questions. However, Maigret plays it shrewdly, poking in all the right places and asking all the right questions. Very enjoyable.
